Make a Book to Celebrate World Tourism Day

Kids' crafts

September 27th marks World Tourism Day. Celebrate this traveling holiday with a fun-filled kids’ craft activity. This special day acknowledges the importance of travel and the ways that tourism benefits people across the globe. In honor of World Tourism Day, help your child to make his own travel book.

Materials:

  • Poster board or cardboard
  • Scissors
  • A hole punch
  • Pipe cleaners (or yarn)
  • Markers, colored pencils or crayons
  • Construction paper
  • Tempera paints
  • A paintbrush
  • Optional: School glue, glitter, sequins

Instructions:

  1. Fold the poster board or cardboard into a book shape.
  2. Put the construction paper in the middle of the folded board.
  3. Punch three holes on the left side (near the fold).
  4. Thread pipe cleaners or pieces of cut yarn through the holes to bind the book.
  5. Draw a cover. Ask your child to think of a picture that focuses on tourism as a theme. It can be a place where your child wants to travel, somewhere that your family has been or a way to travel (such as an airplane or a boat).
  6. Create the indie pages of the book. Your child can draw one ‘postcard’ onto each page. Each postcard represents a different place to travel. If your child isn’t sure what to draw, do some research. Look up places online or page through a few non-fiction travel books. Paint the pictures.
  7. Optional: Embellish the pictures. Your child can draw lines of school glue onto the pictures, and then sprinkle on glitter or sequins!
